Performing the Sunnat-e-Muakkadah before the fardh


  1. Zaid is performing Salaah alone. He calls out the Iqaamah for his Fardh Salaah, but then realizes that he has not yet performed his Sunnat-e-Muakkadah Salaah. What should Zaid do in such an instance?
  2. Would the ruling change if a Sunnat-e-Ghair-Muakkadah Salaah was not yet performed before he had given the Iqaamah?


A: He should perform the sunnat-e-mu’akkadah and thereafter do the fardh.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
